Slow Cooker Pot Roast from www.sowonderfulsomarvelous.com will fit nicely between holiday dinners.
Sorry about my sudden disappearance last week. I was on vacation and couldn’t bring myself to sit in front of a computer for any of it.
I did, however, succeed in making yummy food.
I made double chocolate peppermint cookies, incredible pumpkin muffins and a hearty pot roast.
To avoid getting bogged down in Christmas-themed recipes all month long, I’ll share the pot roast recipe from www.sowonderfulsomarvelous.com
As you probably know, slow-cooker recipes save time in the evening, but most require as much prep as stove-top dishes — and you have to do it in the morning.
Well, I dispensed with that by chopping the vegetables and blending the spices the night before. That way all I had to do the next day was brown the roast and cross my fingers.
By the way, what’s called an “English roast” is also referred to as “chuck shoulder.”
The meal turned out beautifully. The vegetables were perfect, the meat was perfect, and the whole thing made the highlight reel of my low-key week off.
P.S. The recipe doesn’t say to brown the roast, but I wanted it to have that flavor, so it did it — about 2 to 3 minutes per side in a 12-inch skillet.
